VIDEO: Hilo Farmers Market New Look

Despite county orders to the owners of the Hilo Farmers Market to take down their tarps and tents or face a $4,000 fine per day for being in operation, Big Island vendors are continuing to support the market location. Many have already begun to sell their goods again in their own private pop-up tents.

New look to Hilo Farmers Market.

Many residents on the Big Island were shocked to learn that the Hilo Farmers Market was forced to take down their tarps and tents that have been a Hilo mainstay for over 30 years.

Hawai‘i County Mayor Harry Kim said that he had tried to work with the market over the years, but finally, the county had to shut the location down and on Sunday, March 25, 2018. Poles and tarps were removed.

Vendors were upset with the short notice given to them; however, many have gotten over the shock of the idea of not having a permanent tent and have already gotten use to using their own 10-by-10-foot pop-up tents.

While the vendors can set up any day of the week, the market has traditionally enjoyed its largest crowds on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
